A Northern Belle / Blog Design

Posted on: August 14th, 2014 by Hannah Beasley 2 Comments
Every time I work with Meghan I have so much fun – she is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever gotten to know. I had designed her blog about a year or two ago, and recently she emailed me saying she was going to be changing her blog a little bit – including the name and the design. She’s an author (and just published her first book, a historical fiction novel about the Civil War!) and after a few years of blogging and figuring out the direction she wanted to go, she was ready to bring it all together into the type of blog that fit her completely. The name was changed from Just As I Am to A Northern Belle (which fits vintage, history-loving Meghan perfectly!), and the design came next.

Meghan wanted to go with a gray and blue color scheme, with a little pink here and there. She also had the great idea to include a compass in the design – an element to combine the concepts of the North and the time period of the 1800s. We ended up creating a three-column blog, with hand lettered title, hand painted compass, and light colored roses to bring more color into the whole design. I love how this design turned out – as always, Meghan, it was a pleasure working with you!
